In December 1862, things were still confused for the Union. General Burnside was appointed by Lincoln as commander of the Army of the Potomac, and he laid plans to seize and secure the town of Fredericksburg, and then take the Confederate capital of Richmond. Carl Smith's book details the epic struggle that engulfed the Union side as it crossed the Rappahannock, encountering stiff opposition from Lee's men.
